It’s hard to believe that with the holiday week, and network pre-emptions  next week, that As the World Turns will air only three times,  leaving us with only one more week following that before the show end’s it’s 54-year run on CBS on September 17th.

But for fans of LuRE, and Katie and the Hughes family, there will some tough days ahead, as the touching and heartbreaking love story of Luke and Reid comes to a sudden halt, and emotions run high. Watch the ATWT preview for next week after the jump!

I have never been so heartbroken, upset or angry with any soap, show or movie in my life. LuRe was the most beautiful love story I have ever seen. Van and Eric had an amazing on screen chemistry that is just mesmerizing! I could watch them all day even just sitting on the sofa having a conversation. They completed each other in every way and ALL the Luke fans are totally won over to LuRe. So WHY in the world is ATWT stabbing the loyal fans in the heart with this sadistic ending? And, to make this the worst nightmare,… Read more »

I came online this weekend to see if I’m the only one out there who loves Reid and Luke so much. Have been taping ATWT daily since the end of last year when it was announced it was ending. My grandma and mom watched and I grew up watching and wanted to be there for the end. What a classy soap and how I’ll miss it! But I’m glad to see I’m not the only fan of Dr. Oliver. I have fast-forwarded through a couple of other scenes just to get to the ones with he and Luke — such… Read more »

Many thanks for the update of our donation campaign for Doctors Without Borders in honor of Eric Sheffer Stevens. Raj and I started this knowing the fans would need a positive outllet in the face of what was to come. We knew what a special bunch “Lurians” are but are still overwhelmed by their generosity. The week ahead promises to be even harder than what we experienced yesterday and we send hugs to out felllow fans and hope tha they will continue to support DWB as a constructive way to deal with their grief and appreciate Eric’s performance. Thank you… Read more »

I feel like I just read, “Pride and Prejudice” and Jane Austen killed off Mr. Darcy in the end.

This is not good! It is obvious what the powers that be had in mind after I watched last Friday’s episode. It was just too out there. No sublety at all. It’s a shame ATWT has to go out this way. But we will always care about these characters and how they made us feel. I will be watching this coming week whenever it is scheduled. Not tennis……

As the World Turns and Guiding Light Favorite, Lisa Brown, Passes Away at 67

(UPDATED) In just more heartbreaking news in the soap world in 2021, we have lost another beloved performer.  Lisa Brown, who was so noteworthy for her spunky and emotional turns as Guiding Light’s Nola Reardon from 1980-1985, and later as Iva Snyder on As the World Turns from 1986-1994, has died.

Brown passed away this week on November 24th at the age of 67 following a brief illness.  The news came via the As the World Turns Facebook Fan Group and Soap Opera Digest.

This comes just two months later following the death of her former on-screen love interest Michael Tylo (Ex-Quinton, Guiding Light), who passed away in late September.

Those that followed Lisa’s career know she also starred in the Broadway Musical 42nd Street, while still playing Nola each and every day on Guiding Light.

She is survived by her children: James “Buddy” Nielsen, and daughter Victoria from her first husband Tom Nielsen (Ex-Floyd, GL) in addition to her two grandchildren, Penelope Ruiz-Nielsen and Brayden Hopf, and her second husband Brian Neary.

Brown’s on-screen ATWT daughter, Martha Byrne  (Ex-Lily) simply tweeted, “My heart is broken.”

On Friday, Lisa’s son, Buddy Nielsen, posted a touching tribute to his mother, where he revealed that she passed away due to cancer.

Buddy shared: “My Mom passed away the day before Thanksgiving after a very quick battle with cancer. This all happened really fast and wasn’t expecting it. I’ve been MIA as I’ve been back and forth between LA and NJ as she has been in and out of the hospital the last couple weeks. This dream we live, we are all subject to the suffering, aging and death. It’s not to be morose but to understand that we have finite time and must take care with what we do and how we do it. To be able to be with someone at their last breath is truly beautiful. We must not fear death as without it we would never be born and experience the 10,000 joys and 10,000 sorrows. Our existence is both small and vast all at the same time. We are tiny but immense. I know she is here but no longer in her physical form, what we do in love we leave in death. My beautiful daughter and unborn son are her legacy.”

Share your condolences to Lisa’s family, and let us know of your remembrances of this wonderful actress who gave us so many memorable moments throughout her career via the comment section below. But first, watch Lisa in some of her classic scenes from ATWT and GL.

ATWT Favorite, Jon Hensley, Releases New Single ‘I See Heaven’

Former As the World Turns, and The Bold and the Beautiful star, Jon Hensley (Ex-Holden Snyder and Ex-Dr. Meade), has announced not only the launch of his new website, but his new single called “I See Heaven”.

According to Hensley, the new track is a 9/11 20th anniversary song.  Through the holiday season, Jon is noting that you can make donations in lieu of the song and he will take a portion of the proceeds and donate them to various 9/11 charities.

In his welcome note on his site, Jon shares: “Welcome to my site, I am very excited about my new project. Most of you might remember me as Holden, it’s been a long time since the good old days in Oakdale. Who knows maybe they bring them back some day. As the World Re-turns?  After the show did end in 2010, I slowly started getting back into music. I spent some time playing in Las Vegas and decided a year or so ago it was time to release my debut album. Over the last few years, I wrote many songs with my great friend and producer Alan Schwartz. And my 1st single, I See Heaven (911 20th anniversary song) is now available as a download. Sing Out Revolution, my title track which was inspired by the Tennessee Williams quote on my home page, is a revolution on love. I’m planning to release SOR by Xmas 2021. And the full record by early 2022. Join my mailer for updates and thanks for listening!”

So, excited to listen to more of Jon’s music? Share your thoughts via the comment section below.
